Parents, Will Liberals Take All of Your Rights Away?

An ACLU lawsuit claims that father-daughter banquets are against Rhode Island law. In New York City, schools have been caught distributing free abortifacient drugs without bothering to tell parents.  Down in Texas, one of Tammy Cooper's neighbors called the cops with a "neglectful parenting" complaint because Cooper's kids were riding motorized scooters in the cul-de-sac in front of the house. Before being released (without charges, by the way) Mrs. Cooper was held in jail for 18 hours overnight.

Marybeth Hicks concludes, "It’s been an eventful week at the intersection of parenting and politics, that busy corner where decision-making often is affected by the onslaught of traffic from social engineers, liberal educators, public health experts, and civil rights activists who know better than parents what’s best for their kids. [These] news stories seem to indicate that America’s moms and dads are losing ground in the effort to raise their children as they see fit."
